Good News from ARRFC Celia

The Rotary Club of Tynedale arranged for purple crocuses to be planted in various places in and around their region. In addition, crocus buttonholes have been very well received in Tynedale and as far away as Carlisle. Their visual impact has been noted in a number of ways. For example, nursery children (age 2-3) in Carlisle were encouraged to produce paintings and collages of the emerging flowers and were instructed about the good work done to prevent little children from becoming infected with a nasty illness. The children were obviously im-pressed by the message as several parents reported over the following days that the message had been relayed very clearly at home. John McCabe, International Chairman.
